A fantastic opportunity to witness the great wildebeest migration in full flow while staying in the Masai Mara and also experience the culturally diverse and scenically beautiful northern Samburu region of Kenya.
The rugged landscape of the Samburu region is home to Saruni Samburu, the only lodge in the Kalama Reserve bordering the Samburu National Reserve and with over 200,000 acres of unspoiled wilderness, teeming with wildlife to exclusively explore. To stay here is a truly authentic safari experience where you will be guided by Samburu warriors who are passionate about their land and culture. You will learn first-hand about their fascinating customs and gain ancient, local knowledge about the land and animals. Every meal will be enjoyed gazing out over truly spectacular views over Kenya's Northern Frontier District and Mount Kenya.
From here you will spend 4 nights in the famous Masai Mara, splitting your time between 2 camps. The Masai Mara is fabulous for game-viewing year-round but it comes into its own when the wildebeest migration arrives between July and October. Your first stop, Saruni Mara, a tiny tented camp in an ideal position for those interested in watching the Great Migration, but also for all-year round safaris. The Lemek Conservancy has a low density of visitors and camps, is considered one of the most prolific areas of the ecosystem. Conclude your time in the Mara at the intimate Saruni Mara, a small boutique lodge in the Masai Mara North Conservancy. In both accommodations, you will enjoy endless views, fire-lit meals under the vast African sky and guided game drives led by Maasai warriors. Other experiences such guided walks, hot air balloon safaris, bush meals, sundowners and cultural village visits can also be easily arranged.
